One New Zealand rugby fan will be $100,000 down if the All Blacks lose tonight.

TAB spokesman Mark Stafford said the punter placed the $100,000 bet Friday evening, and stood to win $119,000 if New Zealand beat Ireland in its Rugby World Cup quarter-final.

The All Blacks are paying $1.18 for an All Blacks victory and Ireland were paying $4.50.

In 2016, a punter lost $100,000 after Ireland beat the All Blacks in Chicago.

The person had bet that amount on the All Blacks remaining undefeated for the latter half of the season, at odds of $1.50, meaning they would have had a return of $150,000.

Other bets:

On Monday, one punter put a $50,000 bet on All Blacks to win the tournament at $2.25 - the third bet of this size placed on the All Blacks so far in this tournament.

Another punter has put down $20,000 on NZ to win the Rugby World Cup, at $2.20.
